Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Fast Dry Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2015

This review is for the SH top coat in the long, clear bottle with a black top called Clearly Quick.

I bought this top coat after someone on the nail board posted that it doesn't dull the linear effect in holographic polishes. Now, if you wear scattered holos (ex. Kleancolor, OPI DS Extravagance, any A-England holo) you don't have to worry about this happening. But linear …

Polishes - GOSH - Gasoline

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2015

A few years back (at least four, probably more), this polish was the bomb. You couldn't even get GOSH makeup here in the US, and this kind of polish in this particular shade was not as common.

I finally got it after it became available in the US. It was a huge disappointment! In the best photos you can find online, the purple tones are cooler and the shimmer is fairly visible …

Polishes - Essie - On A Silver Platter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2015

This polish is from Essie's 2013 Encrusted Treasures holiday collection. While some of them are either boring or poorly executed, On A SIlver Platter is--in my opinion--the best polish in the collection. First of all, even before you put it on, it looks incredible in the bottle. The base is a strong pale gold shimmer, which becomes more yellow almost glows in certain angles. The glitters …Read more

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Designer Series - Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2014

This top coat was made for a series of polishes that was originally holographic. I believe the formula has not changed. This is my go-to tc for most holos as it generally doesn't dull the rainbow (don't use this over holos that need aqua base, nor the Dance Legend New Prisms). I like this top coat enough that I perfer it over most others for regular polishes (like NYC Grand Central …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Dance Legend Different View

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2014

Now, I have to be upfront about something: I don't like duochromes. I thought the duochrome would be underwhelming (specially since it's the green/purple kind) and it would dilute the holo rainbow. But I was so, so wrong. This polish, while not the holoiest of holos (it's definitely holo, don't think otherwise!) brings out the best of both worlds. The combination of the …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Dance Legend Neptune

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2014

This year's Holodays collection cotains four fine and large particle holos and two multichrome holos. Neptune is a holo mix, medium-dark blue. The color is a bit misleading, as in the bottle it looks very periwinkle. On the nail, in the shade, the polish is darker and grayer. In the sun it looks more saturated, and the large particles sparkle like the large gritty glitter but are better …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Dance Legend Android

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2013

Android is shade #12 of Dance Legend's prism line. It is an emerald green, similar to Layla's Emerald Divine, but the prism in Android has a tendency to reflect blue in a very strong manner. The blue is much more flattering than the yellow in Emerald Divine. It almost changes the color, which looks dull and washed out indoors, and brings it to life in the sun.

Formula-wise …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Dance Legend Optical Illusion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2013

From the prism line, Optical Illusion is one of two purples currently available from Dance Legend. The packaging feels pretty solid (though the cap has a tendency to get scratched, all my new bottles came with some) and holds the standard 15ml/.5 oz.

This particular shade is a deep, warm plum. It is very saturated, specially for a holo of this type (a strong linear holo). The closest …

Polishes - Color Club - Eternal Beauty

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/05/2013

From the second part of the Halo Hues collection released in 2013, Eternal Beauty is a medium-dark purple. The blues in the holographic rainbow are emphasized, making the polish pop in the sunlight. The base of the polish itself is not a jelly, it is more similar to those polishes that need aqua base (like the Laylas) but without all the application issues. Dries fairly quickly. If your …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Whimsical 430

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2012

Whimsical is a semi-dupe for Lippmann's Glitter In the Air. It's a sheer, light blue creamy jelly with blue and pink hexagons and tiny glitter that sparkles blue and green. The overall effect is very delicate, which is something a lot of people don't like. However, this polish is not meant to be a glitter bomb; it's a layering polish. Even if you try, you will need too many …Read more
